This is what they say about us
"After my master's, I was in doubt whether to go for a traineeship or to start my own business. The conversations at High Potential Academy helped me enormously: I found out what gives me energy and what I really find important in my working life. I then made the choice for my own company: AYCE, an ice cream brand that makes cocktails in the form of a sorbet with 5% alcohol. It gives me a lot of satisfaction to make something that I can use my creativity in".
Ruben List | Entrepeneur at AYCE
“ High Potential Academy offered me a great opportunity to think critically about my first job & career during my Master year. "Being able to put into words what I find important and how this translates to the job market is very valuable."

"In 2016 I registered with the High Potential Academy in Amsterdam via a reference. Because you can never start too early with making connections and expanding your network, I was directly interested in the offer of the HPA. I immediately noticed that HPA asked the right questions to show me what I was looking for. As I have a Business Administration background with a master in Strategy & Organization, I was interested in all kinds of companies and functions. Through interviews, job orientation-training, job application-training and an in-house day at Adyen, I figured out what I was looking for in my professional life. The insights Jasper and his team have given me and the contacts I have gained from the sessions are so valuable to me. In the end, the regular contact with HPA has given me a fantastic job at ZIVVER. Because I now work at ZIVVER, my contact with HPA has become even more intensive. The connection with HPA is not for a moment, but for your whole life! Regardless of your area of interest, I would recommend this route to everyone."

"I thought it would be good for me to reflect a little more about the choices I made. During my bachelor's I was prepared for a master's degree in Supply Chain Management, but I also realized that I was interested in Marketing. It was difficult for me to form an idea of where I would be working later on. I just had the last meeting and what I liked about the trajectory so much is that it forced me to think about my own intrinsic motivation and choices without letting myself be influenced too much by what was expected of me by others. It brought a refreshing look at the things I do. I learned to listen to myself more and that why I’m now on the look for my first job in brandmanagement or marketing intelligence!"
